Is PID a STD or can it come from me. I am a 37 year old woman. Second time with pid. How do u find out cause of pid?
PID can be sexually: Pid (pelvic inflammatory disease) is a result of vaginal infection tracking up into the uterus (womb) and then into the fallopian tubes, resulting in spread of infection into the pelvic cavity- hence called pelvic inflammatory disease. Infection with gonorrhea is a classical example. However many other bacteria can cause the same problem. Full course of treatment should be followed. Zk. ...Read more
Often unknown: Mycoplasma genitalium is one possibility. However, the exact cause of PID often isn't known. And not all PID is due to STD, sometimes due to entirely normal vaginal bacteria. Also, prior PID sometimes predisposes to repeat PID without known new STD. Diagnosing and treating PID is complex; she needs to rely on the doctor in charge of her care. Good luck! ...Read more

Cultures and blood: The std chlamydia and gonorrhea are the most common causes of pid, though frequently other bacteria also contribute to the severity of the disease. Bv rarely causes pid but the symptoms of BV are common to more serious infections. Cultures and blood tests are used to screen for the various std's. Please see your gynecologist. ...Read more

DX PID in Er. Had US and Pap. Pap normal, negative for std/sti. Confused about other possible causes, or was this incorrect dx? No hx endometriosis
Possibly Wrong DX: I find that ERs over diagnose women who present with pelvic pain and/or vaginal discharge with PID. It would help to have more information, including symptoms you had. I assume they Rxd antibiotics, and your US was normal. They likely tested you for GC/Chlamydia, which are the most common causes of PID, but not the only pathogens that can cause it. If no better see gyn specialist. Take Care. ...Read more

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama, trich all negative. No std found.?
Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more

In April I had my 1st yeast infection & several more since. I had my IUD removed 6 days ago because it was misplaced. Could this have been the reason? PID ruled out, I'm not pregnant & no diabetes. STD tests negative. What else could be the cause?
Causes unknown: Having an IUD is not a likely cause of recurrent or persistent yeast infections. Except for diabetes, usually no particular cause is known. Assuming the diagnosis of yeast has been confirmed, speak with your doctor about periodic (e.g. weekly) fluconazole (Diflucan®) to stay ahead of the problem. ...Read more

Some PID is non-STD: Most PID is due to gonorrhea and chlamydia, but neither can be found in 20-40% of PID cases. Sometimes the test just missed it. Others might be caused by unknown STD germs. And some cases have nothing to do with STD. Also, previous PID predisposes to new cases, even if the first caused no symptoms. Checking sex partners sometimes turns up STD missed in the PID patient herself. Discuss w/ your doc. ...Read more
